We propose a simple but effective method for enriching dictionary definitions with images based on image searches. Vari- ous query expansion methods using syn- onyms/hypernyms (or related words) are evaluated. We demonstrate that our method is effective in obtaining high- precision images that complement dictio- nary entries, even for words with abstract or multiple meanings.
